Babies are adorable, and baby clothes are addictive…but actually getting a baby into said clothes is a challenge. After hours of wrestling to dress a wobbly-headed newborn and now squirmy infant, I steer away from certain items, like those pieces with eetsy bitsy buttons, rows of mini snaps or fabrics that don’t give a bit of stretch.
Now I don’t have to sacrifice scrumptious baby fashions for ease — three cheers for Ruth Waddingham, a new mom and graphic designer in London and NYC, who has come up with an adorable, modern babywear line called Zipit to make dressing babies easier.
Her clothing is modern and cute with bold colors that work well for baby boys or girls and the fabric is high quality and super soft. My 9 mos son and I tried out the Zipit romper in the ‘Got Milk’ design. The romper has short sleeves and pant legs and could easily be an easy outfit for summertime or warmer fall days. Since its a bit cooler here in NY in November I did need to pair his romper with an undershirt and pants but it still looks good. The romper comes in a pebble color which I guess I can best describe as a greyish brown with a bright blue edging on the neckline, across the zippered placket and the base of the leg openings. The color combination and fabric quality works well. It feels very high end similar to the types of outfits I see in boutiques and high-end baby shops, like Giggle, here in Manhattan.
Retailing for $35.00, the Got Milk Zipit one-piece romper has a full front zippered placket so that you can lay the baby inside with comfort and ease. There is a cute silk screen milk graphic on back tushie area. It is 100 percent cotton knit and machine washable .

That’s IT Mom, Jill
